Avoiding the paperwork

Moving house involves paperwork. It’s boring, frustrating and time consuming but… unavoidable. If you ignore the paperwork, then that’s just one more thing that you have to deal with when you’re right in the middle of the chaos of the move itself. To make it easier set a time to do it and give yourself a reward afterward.

Getting buried in boxes

It can be a frustrating task. However, the task at the opposite end unpacking can be just as frustrating. Trying to unpack everything when you’re not even really sure where it all needs to go can take a lot of the joy out of being in your new home. Self storage can help here. You can store many of the boxes that you don’t need right away, allowing you to focus on the things that you actually need right away.

Leaving it too late

If moving house is stressful, moving house in a rush is enough to send even the calmest person into fits of unbridled rage. Make sure that you give yourself plenty of time to pack things up, organize the movers, and actually move. However long you think you need, add at least a couple of weeks to that, and you’ll be somewhere close to an accurate time frame.
